While cost is not a sole factor in the college decision, it can be a major component. Therefore, the University of Cincinnati provides an online program to help families understand the net price for a college education after basic financial aid has been applied.
The Net Price Calculator is most beneficial to students who plan to be full-time, first-time, degree-seeking undergraduates who will complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The calculator gives you a very general sense of what basic aid sources (such as student loans and Federal Pell Grant) would be available to you based on the data you provide.
The Student Financial Aid Office recognizes the calculator can begin your college planning process. We are available to assist you. While online calculations give an indication of costs and aid eligibility, your individual circumstances and the timing of your application may result in a very different financial aid award package.
- Because some aid programs are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis, complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon after October 1 of each year as possible for priority consideration for limited funding sources.
- Incoming freshmen seeking UC scholarship assistance should have their complete admission application (including transcript and test scores) submitted by December 1 of their senior year.
